“We edit almost anything anyone could imagine,” one ProofreadingPal editor says. “In my nearly four years with ProofreadingPal I’ve edited recipes, dissertations, poems, short stories, novels, children’s books, journal articles, personal correspondence, political ads, news releases, product promotions, visa applications, college application essays, cover letters and resumes, and academic work of all kinds. And what makes it perfect is that I decide what days I work, how many hours I work, and what projects I take on. The flexibility is fantastic, and the variety is fun.”
